I'm not sure how to search for this info or even if I'm asking the right questions. Here's a run down of the full story, if it's too much info I apologize. Just let me know and I will edit out any extra info.
I was an intern at an advertising agency. I did a lot of work that was supposed to go live but never did for various reasons. During that time I designed a trade show booth that had many different items. This is one of the only things I designed that was used/is still being used. The issue is, I designed two table cloths, two different banners, & a tv stand. The internship ended and I went back to finish school, still on good terms with the business (if that matters). A few months after I left, the company printed ONE banner design on two banners. No biggie, just not what I had designed. They also changed the material and added an extra logo to the table cloths. Nothing else I designed was used. When I asked the art director about it, they told me that the original budget for the client changed, so some of it had to be scrapped.
So, some questions:
- Is it even "my" design still?
- Can I use the concept I made with photos of some it being used? Or is that unprofessional?
- If this is the only work I made during the internship that was used by clients, should I even mention the internship?
I'm trying to fix up my online portfolio and I feel like I need to show that I contributed something during my internship, that I had a design actually get pushed live that was solely my own. Any advice would be great. Thanks!
